    Default Call Recorder app that works?

    Anyone know of a call recorder app that records BOTH sides of the conversation at equal levels?

    Just throwing this out there but recording a telephone call without the other person's consent may be considered a felony in some states.

    As stated above, it's illegal in just about every state unless you get the other person's permission. Google Voice can do this, but it let's the other party know.

    Using CallRecorder by Skvalex in Market would be awesomely ideal. Can't believe their hasn't been more serious conversation held about this either...DOH

    In some states only one party needs to have knowledge of the recording.

    Yeah but if it's legal in your state and you intitiate the call then would that be an issue if the receiving party was in another state?

    I'm not a lawyer, but just curious.
    If something is important that it has to be recorded I follow up with an email or keep a log of what transpired.

    Has anyone tested this with the Galaxy Nexus? Does it record from line or mic?

    The whole legality subject is stupid and would only matter in a court case. I doubt the OP is trying to get someone in the mob to confess a murder. He's probably just wanting to be able to record a call when someone is about to give directions or a phone number or address.

    It's not stupid, it's just information the OP can ignore if they like.

    Google Voice when you press 4 will record your conversation. It announces to everyone on the line too. Great for conference calls.

    I use Google Voice for recording. Works great. I wouldn't worry about legal issues since it announces to the other person that the call is now being recorded. If they're not okay with that, they can just hang up. If they keep talking, they're basically agreeing to it. :P

    Unhappy Re: Call Recorder app that works?

    I seriously got the shock of my life when I noticed that my 'smartphone' doesn't have a call record feature. ...!!! Even the most basic phones I ever had, had the call recording feature. And these 'smartphone' don't have it. No, correction. Can't support it...!!!! FAIL....

    According to Google, they DROPPED FULL SUPPORT FOR CALL RECORDING A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO.

    You can now record INCOMING calls only, not outgoing calls. So using GoogleVoice for call recording won't work if you're placing the call.

    Much as I admire the spirit of it, I can't wonder why so many misinformed people clutter up a technical thread with cries over the legalities of call recording. Hey, I can buy a steak knife, and I can stab you to death with it. Many people do that, killing with steak knives, baseball bats, golf clubs. But if I ask a question about which golf club or steak knife to buy, no one mentions that can be used to commit crimes.

    Call recorders are the same way, folks. There are many legal uses for them, there are many MANDATORY uses for them. If the OP isn't asking about the legalities, assume they don't want to hear about that until and unless there's a product that actually can do the job.

    Why so many companies are disabling this native Android feature and locking out access to it, might be a better question to ask. Under the Android license terms, either you make the entire bundle available, or you can't get a license. Go ask about that.

    Under the USB license, you can't use the term"USB" for a plug unless it is installed correctly, with the "top" side up or facing the user. Under those terms, Motorola is in violation along with many other large companies who install their microUSB plugs upside down.

    By all means, ask about legalities, but first respond on point: Call recording software!

    It is so annoying when anyone asks about a recorder it goes to a legal topic. Thats not the point of this thread .The OP was asking a question. I record conversations daily as part of my career. When we sell a Life insurance policy over the phone its required to record the application as it becomes the voice signature and a legal binding document. Sometimes I am away from work and would need this to complete a sale. It would be nice to have an app that does this.

    Get a Google Voice number. You can record the call with it. It will notify the caller that they are being recorded.

    I have a rooted T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S2 SGH-T989, Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich running the Jedi Mind Trick X2 ROM. I bought CallRecorder from Skvalex, version 1.3.1 full. Set preferences to: recording calls (yes), device (Samsung Galaxy S2 (Android 4 ICS), record calls from (standard android api), call recording format (api), show notification (yes). In Advanced menu only the following checked in the OUTGOING & INCOMING CALLS: wake lock during a call, show notification during a call, in-call control. Also under INCOMING CALLS in same menu, in-call control is checked. In same menu items checked under AUDIO PLAYER: use default player, show audio output preference, use proximity sensor, android decoder for WAV, and android decoder for AMR. Works perfectly without bluetooth connected, recording clearly both sides of the conversation through the line connection.

    To use bluetooth pay attention: Within CallRecorder go to Menu, Preferences, Standard Andriod API Preferences, and fix the following to: Audio Sourch (Voice call uplink + downlink), Action on BT connected (switch audio source), Audio source when BT headset connected (voice call uplink + downlink), BT connected = BT enabled (checked).

    Enjoy! Now you can be driving or without note paper and never miss important details or customer requests again.

    Thanks, Tom. It works! It only took a year to get a good answer but very glad eventually got it.
